Happy belated, Axl! The inked, long-haired and famously hotheaded GnR frontman with a notorious appetite for destruction turned 49 on Saturday. The gravely voice, the high-energy performances with running, screaming and Christ-like stage-diving--Axl was as rock-and-roll as rock-and-roll got and an icon of 90s badass-ness/cool (remember how proud you were when you finally mastered the snake dance?). In his honor, we thought we'd commemorate him and his legacy, which includes his epic model/rockstar pairing with Stephanie Seymour, the time he performed "November Rain" with Elton John at the 1992 VMA's, and plenty of leather jackets, plaid, denim cutoffs, and bandannas. We hope this year's benchmark was Paradise City-good. Check out our Axl-inspired gift guide below!
